2018 World Pork Expo Wraps Up 30 Years; Sets Sights On Future

June 20, 2018

More than 20,000 producers, employees and pork professionals attended the 2018 World Pork Expo June 6-8, presented by the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC). Marking its 30th year, the 2018 Expo presented a record number of trade-show exhibitors, hospitality tents, educational seminars and live hogs in the Junior National show.

Each year, World Pork Expo offers pork producers and others a place to meet and visit with a wide range of people who share a common interest to produce the world’s best pork products,” Hermel said. “There is always something to learn and insights to share.”

The addition of the Jacobson Exhibition Center and an expanded outdoor exhibit space pushed the trade show beyond 360,000 square feet. A mix of first-time and long-time exhibitors from more than 500 U.S. and international companies displayed the latest products, services and technologies for pork production.

World Pork Expo will move into its 31st year in 2019. So, mark your calendars and plan to attend the 2019 World Pork Expo, June 5-7, at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines.
